The Inner Side of Church Worship

Geoffrey Hodson



First published in 1930 and long out of print, The Inner Side of Church Worship was written to explore the hidden side of Church ceremony, including invocation of angels, the power of the Sacraments, the healing service, the work of the priest and how members of the congregation can help increase the power and blessing of the Logos and angels during and after the church service.

Although primarily directed towards clergy and laity of the Liberal Catholic Church, this book will appeal to students of esoteric Christianity as well as those interested in the "hidden side" of worship in other religious faiths.

About the Author

Geoffrey Hodson (1886-1983) was a noted author, seer, philosopher, teacher, and one of the most beloved and respected members of the Theosophical Society. He undertook extensive clairvoyant research into the subtle realms of nature, and utilized his clairvoyant abilities to work with physicians and scientists to investigate the mysteries of the physical world, especially in the fields of healing, chemistry, biology, anthropology, archeology, physics and astronomy. A devoted Gnostic and priest in the Liberal Catholic Church, Mr. Hodson wrote numerous books on esoteric Christianity, including the landmark four-volume series The Hidden Wisdom in the Holy Bible.
